Event description

Description

Join us for the 6th annual Living Well with CML conference!

The last couple of years have been tough for the CML community - last year, our Toronto group lost Nancy Pringle, a nurse at Toronto's Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and a passionate advocate for the health and support of people living with CML and their families. The Toronto group also lost Bernie Debosky, a wonderful person, supporter of the CML Network and the loving husband of CML'er Una. A number of CML'ers have also had to undergo stem cell transplants because existing treatments failed to keep their disease at bay. Loss reminds us of the preciousness of life. Watching people struggle with the process and effects of a transplant in a disease that is sometimes called "lucky" reminds us that although many of us are living well with medication, there are those for whom treatment doesn't work or stops working. For them, CML is a killer. And until everyone lives well with CML, until there is a cure, We're Not Done Yet.

This is the theme of this year's Living Well with CML conference. On June 15, 2019, join us for an interactive session on current CML research with Toronto's Dr. Jeff Lipton. We will also explore the complicated dynamic between patients and caregivers from Kensington Health's Teri Henderson, a social worker and caregiver support expert. Teri will also moderate a special caregiver breakout session. Other sessions will explore how to manage your employer during and after diagnosis, cannabis as a potential addition to your treatment plan, what to expect when the patent expires on your medication, and more.

This conference attracts people from all over Canada and has become a beacon in the storm for many searching for education, support and most of all, a community. Like last year, to kick off the conference, we will be hosting the Evening of the Extraordinary, a reception recognizing the special people who have made a difference in our CML experience. Don't miss this special event on June 14, 2019. Come celebrate! For more info and to RSVP for the reception click here.
